The Philippine Science High School is laying the grounds for the creation of an e-based community to foster a more supportive and productive online environment for everyone.

Tagged as the Philippine Science High School (PSHS) E-Based Community Project, it specifically aims to create a database management system for its faculty and students, consequently allowing information sharing in the most efficient manner.

PSHS System Director Ramon Miranda said that the project also intends “to serve its clients nationwide by networking its regional campuses.”

The project will initially be implemented in the main campus located at Diliman, Quezon City. With enough funding support, it is hoped and expected to roll out to other regional campuses in the succeeding year. The PSHS has campuses in Bicol, Western and Eastern Visayas, Cagayan Valley, Central and Southern Mindanao, and Ilocos regions.

The establishment of the PSHS e-based community promises to provide its client speedy communication, improve performance and security within each campus.

The e-based community project covers the creation of three subsystems namely registration system, report card system and student performance monitoring system to efficiently and swiftly process the academic needs of students.

A total amount of P3.091 M was allotted by the Department of Science and Technology for the project which is expected to be completed in time for the coming SY 2004-2005.

PSHS, which is the country's leader in secondary level science and technology education in the Philippines, has other electronic systems in place such as the freshmen admission program system, PSHS website and library system.

Dr. Miranda said that “with the e-community, we hope not only to develop, foster and build interaction but also improve services and information delivery to our colleagues, students and clients.”

The Philippine Council for Advanced Science and Technology Research and Development (PCASTRD) of DOST serves as the monitoring agency for the PSHS E-Based Community project. (Janet Rosalie Anne H. Polita)
